He said it was swapped due to MX on the 757-300.

Great!

Capt. Denny said that he can be there, but his family is going home.

They're now offering $500 in ecerts to VDB, with the first nonstop out on AS at 7pm. Oversold by 30!

Captain Denny just told me it might get swapped again tomorrow -- keep an eye on your seats!
753 has 24 + 57 +132 = 213
763 has 6 + 26 + 71 + 80 = 183

ouch!

I'd like to join if you get something together. I'll be coming in on Denny's flight.

Thankfully my row 2 seat stayed intact for today's UA635.

Sheesh. If I get bounced out of my paid first seat again this week, I'm going to be a little ticked (again). hehe. Last week I lost 2 with one being rebooked to the back in the middle seat after a seven hour delay. Then second rebook on same itinerary (missed connection in DEN due to very late arrival of the previous segment) the next day, at least to eco plus but I still paid for 1st. I'm still recovering from last weeks flights where I also picked up a nasty cold on those rebooks. Still, ready to go

I'll call the restaurant later today to arrange a spot for the group. If everything works out, I'll create a thread in the Chicago forum, and post a link here.

N75853 is scheduled to be our bird tomorrow. Currently at ORD, getting ready to depart for LAX later tonight. Keeping fingers crossed; looking forward to seeing everyone on board!

ETA: Post-flight meet details posted below. The assigned plane has been changed to N74856. Currently on its way to LAX.

Anything going on in SEA before departure? Or just an informal lounge meetup?

Trying to figure out when to head to airport (and/or when to head over to UC from CL)...

I forgot about the Centurion Studio at SEA. I can guest 2 there, though I'm assuming the main meet is in the UC, where I'm not a member anymore and not sure if an inbound from YYZ counts as not on the same ticket.

I love CS, but it is tiny, and United gates are a bit of a hike from there. It seems we have enough UC memberships to guest everyone in, based on the Wiki above.

With the arrival of Denny's delayed flight, mine arrived a few minutes before. Denny's arrival in Seattle.

What timeframe are we looking at for the UC? I am arriving on 635. If on time, I'll be in at 11:45.

I should be there earlier - arriving around 9:30am - and will keep an eye on this thread. PM me for phone number, too.
